• Setting Up Your School Messenger Contact Manager Account

    An important letter on how to set up a Contact Manager account is emailed to parents in November of each school year. The letter contains activation codes that are unique for each student.

    Contact Manger:
    • Gives you the power to manage your contact information.
    • Allows you to control the ways in which you prefer to be contacted for various types of messages. You can select how they want to receive certain messages. Up to eight telephone numbers, five e-mail addresses and five text message numbers can be entered into the contact system.
    • Works like a mailbox, giving you a place to review messages you may have missed.
    To use School Messenger's Contact Manager, simply follow these steps on SchoolMessenger’s secure Contact Manager website.
    1. Click the following link: https://contactme.schoolmessenger.com

    2. Click the “Sign Up Now” link near the bottom of the page.

    3. You will be taken to the Sign Up page where you will enter your email address, a password, your name and zip code. You’ll use your email address and the password you enter here to sign in later. Check “Email me when I have a new phone message” if you would like to receive an email message each time there is a new message in your mailbox. Click Create Account when you are finished. (SchoolMessenger has a strict privacy policy and does not sell or distribute your contact information to any third party.)

    4. Check your email. There will be an Account Activation email from contactme@schoolmessenger.com, which contains a link to activate your account. This link will take you to a confirmation page where you must enter your password in order to activate your account.

    5. Once you’ve activated your account, you’re ready to add your child to your account. Click the link on the main page and add your child’s Student ID and Activation Code.
      Your child's Student ID and Activation Code were emailed to you. If you misplaced this information, please call (314) 854-6014.
    When you have finished adding your child to your account, navigate to the “Contacts” tab and click the edit link to the right of your child’s name. There you can simply check which types of messages you would like to receive and at which phone number or email address. Make sure that you click “Save” when you are finished making changes. If you have other children in the District, you will be able to add them all to the same Contact Manager account with their unique Student ID and Activation Code.

    Please Note: You do not have to sign-up for School Messenger's Contact Manager portal. The contact information you have already given your child's school will automatically be used for notifications. The Contact Manager simply gives you the power to set preferences and review messages.
